Description:

The subtle yet substantial genius of this work is found in the skillful use of color, the weaver's understanding of the ancient tribal composition and her ability to precisely execute detail and secondary elements.

The field consists of three panels each with an indigo ground.

To experience the weaver's mastery of her art form, visually study the principle motifs in the middle panel.

Each is precisely outlined in different colors.

In addition, there is a complex presence of reciprocal or mirror-image spacing among the various design elements.

In the top and bottom panels one sees classic reflecting bird or eagle motifs.

Precise outlining is again prominent in these panels.

The weaver also thought it prudent to "protect" the centrally positioned "eagle" in the top/bottom panels with multi-colored talisman.

Condition:
Excellent. There is one small repair in the upper, left corner.
Structure:
Sumak with extensive use of countered sumak.
